Black Cat at the James Beard House
A Heritage Breed and Heirloom Cultivar Dinner
We are fortunate to have been asked to cook again at the illustrious James Beard House on January 19th in New York City. Our progress with heritage breed livestock and ethno botanical and cultivar crops made us stand out in the national dining scene. For the dinner we’ve woven these themes into a menu that speaks of Boulder’s sense of place, its climate and its community. Along the way of cooking great food and taking care of our guests, the Black Cat's mission is to develop a cuisine specific to the Front Range and plains of Colorado. With this special dinner in New York the Black Cat has an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the elements that make our community a special place.
Though the NYC dinner is sold out, we want to share this special dinner with you in our restaurant. From January 10-14th, we will offer our special James Beard menu as our regular tasting menu option along with our à la carte menu, leading up to our two James Beard Celebration dinners on Saturday the 15th and Sunday the 16th. Eric will be coming out of the kitchen to talk about each course and how it reflects our regionalized Front Range cuisine.
Cost: $99/$149 with paired wines
We also would like to invite you to read our Winter Newsletter and discover all that has been going on at our farms. You can find it on our website and by following the link:

Happy New Year!

Twisted Pine Shows Craft Beer Cares
A Summary of 2010’s Contributions
Boulder, Colorado – January 4th 2010 – Twisted Pine Brewing Company has long been a believer in community involvement. "Giving back to the community is built into the core of our company, it's a part of our mission statement and, while we always have fun hosting events, we take our contributions very seriously,” says general manager Jody Valenta. Over the past 12 months the brewery was able to collect 1,000 lbs of food for EFAA(Emergency Family Assistance Association) a local food cupboard, through their canned food drive. The brewery offered, and continues to offer a promotion that encourages customers to bring in 3 canned food items for a free pint of beer.
This month, the brewery will begin employing members of Imagine!. Imagine! supports services to people with developmental delays and cognitive disabilities. They will be assisting with box construction and mixed 12 pack assembly.
The Ale House at Twisted Pine hosted one benefit event every month for the past 12 months. The events serve to raise a substantial amount of awareness and critical funds for various organizations. “This is a win-win situation for everyone involved,” says brewery owner Bob Baile. “It’s great to work with local organizations to help build awareness, make new friends and give back to the community that has supported us for the past fifteen years.” A few of the organizations partnered with in 2010 include the Autism Society of Boulder, the Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center and KGNU public radio.
The company plans to continue with these programs which have only grown in popularity since their inception. “We measure the success of our business in various ways,” says Baile. “Partnerships with organizations like this are critical to our overall success and essential to who we are as a company.”
